Update:

USCGC Midgett went into "in commission - special status" as of March 31, 2020.  (source:  https://content.govdelivery.com/accounts/USDHSCG/bulletins/29242bd?fbclid=IwAR1tT7rmTJfeKadBVKPd2rhOiSMh3TbbSO3yEADR4yRnJPJNsZzgknrAVH0).

USCGC Mellon will decommission on August 20, 2020 according to various FB group pages for the ship's alumni.  The decommissioning ceremony will be closed, though the coast guard is reportedly looking into live streaming the ceremony.

Both ships will reportedly be turned over to Vietnam.
